I need THERAPY...

So I made an appointment and the therapist was in!

It wasn't exactly like this....

or like this...
 and thankfully, not like this....

So you'll have to jump over to Dr. Shelly Brown's, and check it out for yourself!
(It's so embarrassing to share my problems... but luckily, Shelly is a professional!)

VARIANT - by Robison Wells

Have you read VARIANT yet? It's on Amazon's Best Seller List, so it's definitely worth checking out. 

Genre: YA, Science Fiction, Fantasy

Blurb From Goodreads:
Benson Fisher thought that a scholarship to Maxfield Academy would be the ticket out of his dead-end life.
He was wrong.
Now he’s trapped in a school that’s surrounded by a razor-wire fence. A school where video cameras monitor his every move. Where there are no adults. Where the kids have split into groups in order to survive.
Where breaking the rules equals death.

But when Benson stumbles upon the school’s real secret, he realizes that playing by the rules could spell a fate worse than death, and that escape—his only real hope for survival—may be impossible.

MY OPINION:
4 out of 5 STARS!
This was an awesome story! Seriously AWESOME, and suspenseful! I haven't read much in the sci-fi category lately, so this was different but cool. I was dying when you started to find out "who was who," and I'll leave it at that, so as not to spoil it. The only reason I gave it 4 out of 5 is because it was too slow in some parts. When I thought he should be sitting still, and plotting an escape he was actually attempting them and when I thought he should be RUNNING he wasn't. It was aggravating! But still - WORTH IT! If you haven't read this yet, be sure that it is next on your TBR list!

On a cool note... I just won this on Donna's Blog, "Weaving a Tale or Two" and I am SO EXCITED. I was going to buy it for my niece for Christmas, but now I won it for her! YAY! Love to save me some money and give a good gift at the same time!

If you've read VARIANT, what did you think of it? What are you reading right now?
